Mother's Day is all about showing your mom, well, how much you love and appreciate her. What better way to do that than with a fully stocked ladies' night in? Start with a DVD ($16) or Blu-Ray™ ($26) copy of It's Complicated, of course, since it's got some great mother-daughter themes. You'll be laughing the whole time, and Mom will enjoy ogling Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin while you go doe-eyed over John Krasinski.
While the movie's running, indulge mom with a mani-pedi. Use the Butter London Creme Trio Gift Box ($24) to soften her hands & feet. Pretty up those hard-working fingers and toes with the all-natural polishes in the Julep Favorites Gift Set ($19).
Since no grown-up movie night is complete without adult beverages, pour a couple glasses of Escarpment Over the Edge 2008 Pinot Noir ($14) and tell Mom that like this fine wine, she's only gotten better with age (Aww). As you sip the vino, nibble on decadent Valerie Confections' Pansy Petit Fours ($50 for a 12-piece box), with sweet-tart Lemon Pansy and exotic Cassis Pansy flavors.
Sure, Mom is going to appreciate all the fun gifts, but we know what she's going to love the most is spending time with you.
